Description

- Comprehensive restoration in 2004

- Part of private collection and in wonderful condition

- Recommissioned following purchase in 2015, MoT to October 2017

Initially, the B was only available in Roadster form and at launch, the model was powered by a three-bearing version of the 1798cc B-Series engine that produced 95bhp at 5,400rpm. However, with an eye on superior reliability, this unit was replaced by a five-bearing one two years into production. The MKII version of the venerable MGB was introduced in 1967 and brought an updated manual gearbox, the option of a Borg Warner automatic unit, revised rear axle, and switch from dynamos to alternators.

This lovely example was subject to a comprehensive restoration in 2004 before forming part of a private collection and subsequently being acquired by the vendor and added to his own collection in 2015. More recently recommissioned, this most attractive MG B is described as being in "superb" condition with a "fabulous" black interior and hood and "excellent" engine. The white bodywork also presents to a high standard. Carrying an MoT to October 2017 and showing c.93,600 miles on its odometer, OSB 121K has recently led a pampered existence and would be a delight to enjoy on a summer's day or a potential winner on the show circuit.
